Facebook Murder Suspect Fatally Shoots Self In Erie County


"We have closure in regards to the hunt for Steve Stephens", said Frank Jackson, mayor of Cleveland, where Mr Godwin, 74, lived and was murdered.

The search for murder suspect Steve Stephens put authorities in surrounding states on the lookout.

Henry Sayers, the restaurant's manager, told The New York Times that Stephens bought a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and large French fries for $5.35, and that employees tried to stall the murderer by purposely delaying his order of fries.

Stephens then fatally shot himself inside the vehicle.

As his vehicle was spinning out of control due to the maneuver, Stephens pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head.

Stephens was the focal point of a almost two-day nationwide manhunt after shooting and killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin about 2 p.m. on Easter Sunday, police said.
